Have palpitations and migraines afterward. Is it an epilepsy? What can I do?

Hi, for the past year and a half Ive been having these events-they last only a few mins max, im still fully conscious, and its like a de ja vu causes heart palpetations and a migraine afterwards..Ive seen a neurologist at the hospital and he seems to think its epilepsy , however the heart halter monitor test, ecg , eeg and sleep deprived eeg tests were all fine, and i think its definately something else, not epilepsy...what other causes could this be? could it be a result of blood sugar by any chance? today i had one thismorning after i got up and it was before breakfast, and ive just had another one after ive eaten lunch.. Thanks for your time, Sarah.

Dear Friend,
Either these are panic attacks or seizure episodes . If eeg is normal then nothin toworry , Try few antianxiety medications after consultation with your doctor. If sugar levelf fall rapidly these can also mimic these symptoms but you need to confirm that by getting sugar levels documented during these attacks .
